You know how I love a good "wild-animal-eats-dumb-human" story. Well, here's another one to kick off another week of mocking stupidity here on TRR....
ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Authorities in northeastern Pennsylvania say a woman was killed by her pet black bear as she cleaned its cage.
State police say 37-year-old Kelly Ann Walz was mauled to death Sunday evening by the 350-pound bear.
A state Game Commission spokesman says Walz kept the bear inside a steel and concrete cage near her house about 20 miles northeast of Allentown.
Officials say Walz threw a shovelful of dog food to one side of the cage to distract the bear while she cleaned the other side. At some point the bear turned on her and attacked.
No matter how cute and cuddly they appear when young, wild carnivores will eventually eat you if you keep one as a pet. The story said she owned a lion and tiger too. Who couldn't have seen this coming?
Every time I poke fun of people who by their own blinding stupidity, maim or kill themselves, I get hate mail from their family members saying how hateful and callous I am and what wonderful people their loved ones were. I'm not saying they weren't wonderful people....just that they were wonderful, stupid people.
